Title: Justice Prevails
Publisher: Totally Bound Books
Author: Morticia Knight
Never judge a sexy man by his cover.
Detective Beau Williams is hardworking, dedicated and professional. He enjoys the finer things in life, but with his heavy caseload that includes what Beau suspects is a new serial killer, he has no time to enjoy much of anything. What the tall redhead needs is someone to shake him up a little.
Investigative Technician Austin Kent never met a snarky joke he didn’t like—or a set of stairs that couldn’t trip him up. One night after a devastating episode at work, Austin sees something else he likes—the handsome detective he’s seen around the station that he’s always wondered about. But after he makes a drunken fool of himself in front of Detective Williams, he’s sure there’s no hope.
Beau and Austin’s worlds collide when Austin is sent to pick up some evidence at the station. Amidst a myriad of twists and turns in the troubling serial killer-style murders of Vegas conventioneers, Austin and Beau discover that there’s more to the other than they’d originally thought. There might even be more they’d like to give—unless the killer has the final say.
Justice Prevails is the third book in Ms. Knight’s series Sin City Uniforms. The publishers website suggests reading the books in this series in order, and while I agree with that after reading this book, I had no problem reading just book three and at no time felt lost. A mystery, Justice Prevails has as its main characters Beau, a cop for the Vegas PD and Austin, an Investigative Technician for the DA’s office. These two have seen each other in passing, however their first actual meeting is a dozy and I could not help feeling bad for Austin after the day he had.
Their relationship from the beginning is full of issues and the fact that while they are trying to figure out what they feel for each other, they are also trying to solve a murder mystery, does not help things. While the romantic relationship in this story is well done, it is the mystery that really held my attention.
Someone has been killing convention goers, and while the victims do not seem to have anything in common other that being in Vegas for business, Beau can’t help thinking they are connected. There were many little twists that will leave you guessing in this mystery and at one point I even wondered if the killer would turn out to be a cop. As the mystery is coming to an end, things go badly for our main characters but the author makes sure they get their happily ever after.
I have read several other books by this author, but none in this series. However, after reading this book I plan on getting books one and two, and can’t wait to see what the future has to hold for the Sin City Uniforms series.
